In December we welcomed 14 guests and friends from Aberystwyth to our Christmas market in Kronberg. We had a great time and the sale of goods at our stalls was a success.
Representatives from Kronberg’s four twin-towns – Le Lavandou, France; Porto Recanati, Italy; Ballenstedt, former East Germany; and Aberystwyth – met on the Friday night before the market in the Civic Hall for speeches, dinner, and entertainment on stage.
As for many years before, the contribution from Aberystwyth was again outstanding. Rae Lewis, accompanied by Rick Lloyd, received a lot of applause for their performance.
In August, in Kronberg, and in September in Aberystwyth we shall celebrate the 20th anniversary of twinning between Kronberg and Aberystwyth. I believe visiting each other’s twin-towns for those events should be worthwhile.
May I wish all my friends and all your readers a healthy and happy new year.
Fritz Pratschke (Aber-Fritz), Freeman of the Town of Aberystwyth, Kronberg.
